"Let the entire funeral be conducted in a quiet, well-ordered and dignified manner, and you have conferred a lasting favor upon those who required the sorrowful need of your service.  This is the best method of advertising an undertaker can and should employ, and it is the stepping-stone for sure success."  Source: The American Funeral Record, 1915.  Courtesy Moravecek Funeral Home.
